A tony, exclusive event that car people can attend this weekend

Greenwich, Connecticut, started out as a port located on an inlet that empties into the Long Island Sound. It’s a place of money and distinction. It’s certainly an apropos locale for eyeing conveyances that grace the land and water. That’s the story behind the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance, which marks its 24th anniversary as a happening for cars and boats this coming Saturday and Sunday.

The featured mark at the concours isn’t really a marque per se, but instead, it’s the Italian coachbuilder Zagato, whose gorgeous handiwork is typified by the Zagato-bodied Alfa Romeo GTZ competition coupe on the left of the image. Distinguished attendees at the concours will include Andrea Zagato, grandson of Zagato founder Ugo, and his wife Marella Rivolta Zagato, a member of the Rivolta family, founder of Italian car maker Iso. Also on hand doing book signings will be the British racing legend and TV motorsports commentator David Hobbs, esteemed photographer Michael Furman and author John Nikas. Chasing Classic Cars host Wayne Carini and author-historian Ken Gross will both be making presentations. Bonhams will be conducting an auction of collector cars, and there will be displays of august cars and, naturally, yachts. Hey, this is Greenwich.
